A Review of the 2019-2020 Term & Preview of the 2020-2021 Term

The Supreme Court’s last term dealt with issues of abortion, Second Amendment, sex discrimination, religion, and the weight to be given to the Court’s prior decisions. The upcoming term will have cases involving the Affordable Care Act and religion. The discussion will focus on a review of the 2019-2020 term and preview of the 2020-2021 term. In light of the passing of Justice Ginsburg, the discussion will also address how a new justice may affect how the Court addresses these and other issues, as well as a consideration of what role the Court should have in resolving these social and political issues.

Please Note: This is a single lecture event offered online via Zoom. Registration is required.
